I can verify it - see my previous post. Tonight I'll post the full 
report from dmesg under the two circumstances: after a power down and 
after a non-powerdown reset.

Could the problem I have seen with the remote control be related? I was 
wondering whether both problems were somehow related to buffering 
problems in the i2c.
